to the rest of the world, if you look at germany, uk, japan, france, all of whom have very strong gun regulations, we have more gun deaths in one week than they have in an entire year, and the incidents -- the number of times in which guns inside a home are used for self-defense are exceedingly small, on the order of maybe 1 in 15, 1 in 20 as compared to the number of times when a gun is used either for suicide or a homicide. anybody that looks at the data here is quite clear that on the whole, particularly things like assault weapons, create far, far more kor nage in th carnage in this country than they prevent. to a large extent the reason why i think progressives have not been able to mount an effective campaign for sensible gun laws, it's been a failure of the progressive movement, and i think that will now change with progressives. they must realize they have to make this an election issue. all of the polls show that the public is widely in favor of sensible gun regulations. i will point out what i said on friday. president clinton after columbine when we were meeting in the oval

in the uk, multiple sources say she took her own life and was found on the hospital premises this morning. they tried to revive her but unsuccessfully. the hospital interestingly said that they have been supporting her through this difficult time and telling us that she was having a tough time. we don't know exactly why or what else was going on in this woman's life. but it appears that she did commit suicide on the grounds of the hospital. anyone else who worked with her but people described as stunned, that the news is staggering. one of the things that this prank phone call really highlighted, aside from the fact that it was a breach of security, was the kindness and unsuspecting nature of both of the nurses who took the phone call. this nurse in question today was the one who originally took the call and then transferred it to the duchess of cambridge's ward. the hospital even said, you know what, these nurses are trained to care for patients, not trained to deal with journalistic trickery. >> michelle, thank you. >>> talk about a major flip-flop from the senate majority. mitch mcconn

's no different than what happened over in the uk, in my opinion. they had a similar proposal to what we proposed with dollar revenue and $3 worth of spending cuts. they had a cost benefit analysis they did on all the spending programs, they raised the retirement age. they slowed the rate of growth of health care and they tried to get to balance in four or five years. and we thought at the time the debt was too much too quick that amount of austerity would really, you know, lead to a recession. that's why we had as our number one priority in our program that we didn't want to do anything to disrupt a very fragile economic recovery, so we phased ours in. if you do that and if you look at the economic forecast you can see what would happen. you'll probably have economic growth slowed by with about 4%. we're only growing at 2%. so you're automatically in recession. you would have about 2 million more people lose their jobs. that's not something i want to see. and unemployment back to 9%. i think that's absolutely wrong and i think is the kind of thing we should avoid. there's no sense betting the co

shootings which just doesn't happen -- single episodes happen in australia or the uk or other places, but then they don't recur again and again. so i think the president was saying something about the nature of us as a people. if there is something we can do to, again, not take guns away from people but find ways to have that right be balanced in a less destructive way with the rest of society's rights, i think his laying down a marker saying we have to ask who we are, what we accept as normal and can we countenance the idea of 20 little children being murdered in ten minutes. so i think it may be for those reasons and those that liz was saying, it could be a turning point. >> thanks to both of you for being with us this morning. james mentioned those 20 little children. well, funerals for two of those victims are going to be held today. services for 6-year-old noah pozner will take place. 6-year-old jack pinto will be laid to rest this afternoon in newtown. he was a huge fan of giants wide receiver victor cruz. cruz honored jack by writing his name on his cleats for yesterday's game
